Metro Station Elbbrücken

Hamburg, Germany, 2018

As a counterpart to the bridges, the new stop is characterised by a significant steel structure made of curved frame girders - a constructive civil engineering structure is being constructed in a modern way. The external roof construction underlines the visual presence of the supporting structure, the cross-shaped arrangement of the frames results in a grid-like overall system and a stable barrel. The longitudinal purlins suspended underneath support the glazing and form the weather-protecting glass cover. The light-flooded bus stop offers interesting views of the new quarter centre at Baakenhafen, the striking high-rise buildings and the Elbe bridges. Simple and clearly structured development principles characterize the design. The complex differences in height between ground level and platform level are cleverly solved within the building. The platforms are partly located on steel bridge structures spanning the Freihafenelbbrücke road with 35 m. A filigree structure with stairs and elevator towers is arranged inside the hall for crossing the tracks. Via the track crossing one reaches the steel bridge, which connects the subway station with the S-Bahn as a glass tube.
